Biography of Margaret Kollmer

Have been writing ever since I discovered the fascination of words. Most of what I write falls into the poetry genre - perhaps mostly in humorous vein. I love satire but have to tame my spirit or I'd get shot, banished to a strange island or maybe even be scowled at.

Margaret Kollmer's Works:

Numerous magazine articles, poems, book reviews, etc.
To Make a Mocking Word Sing and get published!
Letters to Les - An encounter with grief.
11 South African Folk Tales in 11 Official Languages
Contributed to a humour column for over 15 years - writing limericks, parodies and sometimes some horrific little tales about Mary and her little lamb. Wonderful practice for all forms of writing!

The Hawker

Got me a new job today -
catching sunbeams
and hawking them
to those in need:
the only requirement being
a hungry heart
and an outstretched hand.
